The History of the World Chess Championship

Product Code: DVD0010KP


This monumental video presents the viewer with the most important people and events that have comprised the world championship over the course of more than 150 years. It covers 20 players who were able to lay claim to the title of Chess World Champion, including the unofficial world champions Morphy, Anderssen and Zukertort and their styles.

In this, the 9th of Dr. Kopec's well-received instructional chess videos, you will learn that you need to know about these great champions. Dr. Kopec lucidly explains their backgrounds and the aspects of their chess styles that made a significant imprint on the history and the development of the game of chess. It is organized into three chapters:

* The Romantic Period (Morphy to Steinitz)
* The Hypermodern and Dynamic Period (Lasker to Botvinnik)
* The Modern Period (from Petrosian to Carlsen)

The discussion of each player is followed by one or more games that Kopec deemed the most representatives of the styles, strengths and contributions to chess. Included are 31 games or game fragments which are really a small sample when one considers the thousands of games that are candidates.
